    I just noticed this; my lock screen is set to spot light and for some odd reason it keeps reverting back to "picture" mode. As soon as I change it and move to themes or any of the other choices and go back to lock screen it's right back at "picture" mode.

    It's not a big deal, just annoying as all get out.

    :)

  3. Lock vs Login screen screenshot


    You can use your own image of any background and just go to settings/personalize/lock screen and click on browse as in the image below. It should make whatever picture you use as the Lock Screen

    Lock vs Login screen screenshot


    Hi Josey -

    Thanks for the quick reply. While your suggestion does change the sign in process, it doesn't address the differing screenshot question. Following the steps doesn't make the login screenshot the same as the Lock screenshot. As I mentioned, I can't even find the screenshots being used for both screens.

    Still looking a solution to this. Open to any other suggestions you might have to the problem. Thanks!
